Jo Jutsu -- The Art of the Staff

Jo Jutsu teaches techniques using three sizes of staves: the 3' sho-jo, the 4' chu-jo, or the 6' dai-jo.

The art teaches Strikes (Uchi), Chokes (Shime), Throws (Nage), Arm Locks (Ude Garame), Take Downs (Otoshi), and Disarms (Ate). Attacks and defense against bladed weapons and empty hand attacks are taught as well. All techniques are taught using the same core principles as the other arts.
